Customer Question
My dog suffers from...

My dog suffers from fluid mucus build up that causes short coughing fits. The fluid that he coughs up is clear thick water like and fo***** *****. Not from stomach. He has done this for a long time however now it is increasing probably 3 fit an evening. It seems to happen most often when his is lying down trying to sleep. He was the victim of ant poison years ago could this be related??

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Did you see what your dog ate?

No change in diet that I can think of. Again the spit up seems not to com from the stomach in content or smell.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?

Irish Setter. Wonderful dog.
